My thoughts are that he is retiring. Tiger doesn't call press conferences, he hates them. I'm afraid his body had caught up with him. http://sports.yahoo.com/golf/blog/devil_ball_golf/post/Tiger-Woods-set-to-make-an-announcement-on-Monda?urn=golf-wp3429
Tiger Woods set to make an announcement on Monday morning
If Tiger Woods is calling in his media "friends," you know something is up. That's why the news that Tiger will sit down with The Golf Channel's Kelly Tilghman on Monday morning at 11 AM ET seems a bit strange. Tiger hasn't played golf since early May at the Players Championship, and announced last week that he wouldn't be attending the British Open this week at Royal St. George's.
What could it be? Well, there are a number of things that Tiger might need to get off his chest. Here are a few of the possibilites.
-- Tiger won't play golf for the rest of 2011. This one seems like the most likely because if Tiger is still hurting, and really wants to get 100 percent, he might need more time away from the game.
-- Tiger needs to have surgery to fix his knee/Achilles.
-- Tiger might comment on his relationship with Anthony Galea, maybe just to clear the air after Galea was indicted last week on counts of transporting illegal drugs across the border for a number of athletes.
-- Tiger might be giving us an idea of when he will return to golf.
Our good friend Ryan Ballengee over at Pro Golf Talk also threw in retirement as a possible topic, but I'm not totally sure Tiger is ready to hang up the Nike cleats just yet.
